    PO: Wilco 10 LP Box Set

    Carpenter here. It's really, really bad. A novice carpenter could easily cut down, build, and stain all 10 of these boxes in a single work day, and I suspect the designer spent even less time on it than that. You don't usually leave the edges of plywood exposed (it's a building material, not a decorative wood), and you certainly don't stain the edges. If the albums cost $20 each (assuming they didn't get them at wholesale price), that's $200. The raw material the boxes were built from probably cost less than $10 each. Altogether, the 10 boxes cost $2,100 to produce. In total, they sold all 10 for a total of $12,000... essentially a $10,000 profit. Not bad for a days work, right?

    The Vinyl Deals Thread (non-Amazon)

    Everyone in my white suburban hometown is. His signs are everywhere. It's one of many reasons I moved the fuck out of said hometown 15 years ago, and will never move back. Pointing a gun at a teen and being a racist asshat are only surface level reasons to hate this guy. The actions he's taken as SOS are much more insidious, and I truly believe he's a threat to democracy.

    Dem in Georgia here. FTFY. I'll gladly sacrifice a free LP if Brian Kemp gets humiliated in our election.
  4. The fact that they promoted the original as "this will never be repressed" is probably grounds for a false advertising legal claim. I would imagine that they're keeping it quiet for a reason.

    Seriously?

    So... since online forums are dying a slow, painful, and predictable death thanks to the advent of sites like Reddit... you're going to willingly drive another nail in the coffin? Okay. Good luck? BTW, the term is "ad blocker," not "add blocker." Signed in incognito to leave this message & won't be visiting the site nearly as much if I see a huge, unclosable pop-up when I try to visit.
  6. Yeah, he's not a great musician/singer by any means. His strength and talent lies in his sheer creativity and production, not in his live shows. I've seen him a handful of times, and the only one that I was impressed by was a solo acoustic tour he did right before Sea Changes came out. It was basically just him sitting on a stool while having conversations with the audience and taking song requests.

    Albums That Should Be Pressed on Vinyl

    Add Spacehog's The Chinese Album to that. I'd never even noticed that they've never been released on vinyl before. Both albums were pretty stellar, and sadly, didn't get the acclaim they deserved. Can't say as much about their following albums though.

    Posted this over on reddit, but figured that it fit here too... Google Express is offering 20% off orders if you use their app to complete your purchase, and enter the promo code APPSAVE20. This code is good until 1/20. Alternately, if you've never used Google Express, you can get a $10 store credit for using a referral. Here's my referral link, if anyone is interested. Depending on how much you spend this might be a better deal than the 20% off deal. Walmart and Fry's Electronics have a pretty vast selection of vinyl, and some are pretty cheap. Check my reddit link for a list of deals that I put together.
  9. Heads up: Shipping is $15 to the US.
  10. Uh, Gorillaz Demon Days is back in stock. Here's my referral link if anyone wants to thank me $10 credit: http://fbuy.me/hs14Z EDIT: Ha, just went back a couple pages and noticed it's been back in stock for a couple weeks. Guess I shoulda looked there first

    What happened to Oldies.com? I remember a few years ago they had tons of stuff on sale for super cheap, and at one point I bought a dozen modern clearance records for like $60. As of the past year or two their clearance section has seemingly been a bunch of sealed 70's-80's backstock that no one is going to pay a dollar for. I've kept my eyes on the site since then, expecting a similarly awesome sale, and it's never come.

    This is probably the most bootleg bootleg cover I've ever seen.

    Ah, my bad, a lot of sellers have the regular version listed under the Super Deluxe Box Set version https://www.amazon.com/Houses-Holy-Super-Deluxe-Box/dp/B00M30WIJ6 (under 64 New from $21.70)

    I was going to get two, one to keep and one to flip (sells for $70 average on Discogs). but then I noticed there are literally a dozen sellers on Amazon who are selling it for even cheaper.
